  1. We love Brandon Sanderson here; that's why we've done over a hundred and fifty of these Shardcasts. But you know, we have some beefs too. We did a Cosmere Beefs episode long ago in 2018, and so it's time for some new (and updated) beefs for 2021, with some of our newer cast members as well! We have some funny beefs along with some serious ones too, but we hope our complaining is entertaining! Put your beefs in the comments; we'd love to read yours! There are some Skyward spoilers in addition to cosmere ones, which we have put on screen so you can skip past (or you can look at the chapters). This episode we have a few returners, Eric (Chaos) and Alyx (Feather), who has some hilarious reactions during WTCC. Then we have people who weren't on our first beefcast: Shannon (Grey), Jessie (Lady Lameness), Ala (Rasarr), and joining us for the first time on the show, Payden (Otto Didact)! Here's a link to our first cosmere beefs episode: https://youtu.be/noEmwqgqGWs Thumbnail from Ralf Melevo: https://www.instagram.com/p/B_lG5jmHX3M/ Chapters: 00:00 Introductions; lots to taco about 6:09 Spoiler warning 6:33 Kelsier 13:32 Anger is always a moral flaw 19:18 Reckoners spoilers 20:13 Anger cont. 22:57 Resurrection trope, fakeout deaths 33:18 Class struggle in Stormlight 47:01 Classical Scadrial and near-term history can be absent 1:01:10 Totally an actual sponsorship 1:03:42 Starsight spoilers: Delvers 1:12:12 Lack of Skyward Flight people in Starsight 1:20:54 The greatest RoW plot that didn't happen 1:29:45 Dropped RoW threads and the pure tones 1:33:42 Raboniel and Navani 1:43:14 Veil's reintegration 1:45:31 Magical combat 1:50:04 Lightning round 2:05:26 Who's That Cosmere Character If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  2. Sunreach, the first of the Skyward Flight novellas, came out last week, and so here's a bonus, "shorter" Shardcast on us discussing this novella! Turns out it's pretty great. There will still be a regular episode this weekend. On this episode, we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Marvin (Paleo) who brought along his slug friend, and Ala (Rasarr)! Yes, I know this is already longer than many podcasts but shhh, it's short for us. Under 75 minutes? So short!

  3. Can you believe that we've never done an actual episode on Kaladin? He's kind of a big deal, and he did a lot in Rhythm of War, so let's get into it. We also, of course, talk about depression and mental illness as well. This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), Ben (Overlord Jebus), and Jessie (Lady Lameness)!

  4. We got a new Brandon Sanderson book this year already, and it is Lux! It is an Audible original set in the Reckoners universe, and it's time for us to talk about it. Overall we liked it, but we obviously get into the weeds, because it's Shardcast. Spoilers for the original Reckoners trilogy (Steelheart, Firefight, and Calamity) here, but if you haven't listened to Lux yet, we start with spoiler-free reactions. Chapters are below! Hosting this episode is David (Windrunner), and we also have Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Danielle (FelCandy), and Marvin (Paleo)! How many ways can Evgeni say a different character when he meant Jax? Well, you'll find out! Lux is out: https://www.17thshard.com/news/brandon-news/lux-is-out-physical-dawnshard-and-way-of-kings-prime-dragonsteel-mini-con-r736/ 00:00 Introductions 2:26 Spoiler-free reactions to Lux 20:20 Spoiler stuff and the ending 45:16 The Reckoners 1:29:39 Epics 2:02:55 Final Thoughts 2:13:40 Who's That Reckoners Character If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  5. Here's our second Word of Brandon episode from JordanCon 2021! Here lay answers to critical questions like, if a tree falls in the Forests of Hell and no one is around to hear it, do the shades still get angry? And watch many questions from the general Q&A where people try to talk their away around spoilers in hilarious ways, like about a certain Scadrian's bones. Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Marvin (Paleo), and Rosemary (Kaymyth)! All Words of Brandon from JordanCon: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/472-jordancon-2021/ Chapters: 00:00 Introductions 2:43 Ralkalest vs. aluminum 4:37 Do Kelsier and Sazed still like each other? 7:02 Will Dalinar have a longer page count in Stormlight 5? 7:43 Did the Five Scholars go to Sel? 10:24 Dalinar's weird visions 14:48 Has Wit's bond bound him to Roshar more? 15:32 Dakhor monks 17:25 Is Roshar like Arelon, with something thematically broken? 19:09 Elantris sequel 20:21 Wax and Steris having children 22:36 Was there ever an Adolin and Shallan wedding scene written 23:35 How Fused and Regals get their Voidlight 27:12 No direform news for Ben 29:01 Lifeless and unkeyed metalminds 31:22 If a tree falls in the Forests of Hell and no one is around to hear it, do the shades still get angry? 33:11 A Bondsmith bound "other Surges" 40:07 Is the Survival Shard Autonomy? 42:41 Not really canonical snarky Nazh comments 47:57 Southern Scadrian body temperature 48:40 Word of Karen on White Sand 50:34 General Q&A: Can you Awaken a blanket to be warm? 52:59 Upcoming Brandon writing schedule, he may push Stormlight 5 back if needed 59:00 Ishar and a "certain Scadrian" having similar goals 1:06:15 What determines which realm Investiture returns to? 1:08:30 Is Endowment a dragon? 1:11:14 Did the Seventeenth Shard ever find Hoid? 1:13:30 Is Taravangian's boon and curse still in effect? 1:14:50 Can Hoid eat Soulcast bacon? 1:15:50 Whimsy in Lost Metal 1:17:34 Do seons automatically know what their Aon means? 1:21:58 Who has a better understanding of object souls, a Soulcaster or Forger? 1:24:38 Who's That Cosmere Character If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  6. So I was watching the sShardcast on BAM and I got this idea. What if the 3 original Spren of Roshar was Nightwatcher, Sibling and BAM. We know from Stormfather and Dalinar' conversations that Stormfather was not sentient before Honor' death. If the Stormfather was not interested in the affairs of men then how would he create a Bondsmith in those times? So if Stormfather only gained sentience post Honor' death then originally Honor' Bondsmith was selected by some other powerful Spren. Who could it be? BAM Yes hence BAM' powers with 'Connection'...that is why Honor' Splinter chose a new Spren to reside in coz the original spren has been imprisoned. Honor must have started going mad ever since Odium managed to corrupt Honor' own Spren. What do you guys think?
  7. Oh boy everyone, we have some spice for you today! At JordanCon we had both a reading from the Lost Metal (Wax and Wayne 4), which was its prologue, as well as one of the craziest Words of Brandon: Taln didn't break! Holy crap. Oh, and Marvin's meme game is on point this episode. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Jessie (Lady Lameness), Marvin (Paleo), and Rosemary (Kaymyth). Apologies for the late episode! The next one, which will be more WoBs, should be out Saturday, and we'll resume our once every two weeks schedule.

  8. We are extremely fortunate to have the amazing booktuber Merphy Napier on the show today! She just finished The Bands of Mourning for the first time, and so we thought hey, let's talk about Mistborn Era 2! What book is everyone's favorite, favorite characters, and more! The rest of us reread Era 2 and we have thoughts (and many more podcasts on Era 2 are coming). We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Jessie (Lady Lameness), Rosemary (Kaymyth), and of course, Merphy, and you can find her channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7FW6FYqPLeQIXMSulBfOLw/ She just did a Bands of Mourning review (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZFfbD4KAGg) and she's been recently doing an awesome series on Inside Publishing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKebN_9ykjo) which you should go check out! 00:00 Introductions 00:04:45 What did you think of Era 2?

  9. In this episode of Shardcast, we go through the very light, chill topic of Shallan's past. Oh boy, there is so much to talk about, and so much more in Rhythm of War to ruminate on. Let's grind through and see if we can figure out what's going on here. Today We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), Grace (thegatorgirl), Joshua (jofwu), and Jessie (Lady Lameness, who I still owe brownies to).

  11. There's less signings these days, but there are still a few things that have happened, like an excellent Cosmere.es interview, as well as another spoileriffic Brandon stream!

  12. Happy Pride Month everyone! This episode of Shardcast, we get very gay. We're talking about Queerness in the Cosmere, so we're talking about queer representation, examples, how Brandon has evolved over time and is putting in more representation. We also have some critiques and hopes for the future. So if you want to see the cosmere from a queer lens, this episode is for you! This week Jess (LadyLameness) has killed Eric and is hosting the podcast instead, and we have our token straight person, Alyx (Feather), as well as Matt (Comatose), Shannon (Grey), Ala (Rasarr), and Kadie (AonEne)!

  13. Last time we talked about Moash in a meta sense, but let's dig a bit more into Moash, who now holds the title of He Who Quiets. But, of course, we also need to talk about Grace's villain crush, who used to hold that same title: El! This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Alyx (Feather), and Grace (thegatorgirl)!

  14. This week on Shardcast, we're talking about everyone's favorite character: Moash. Has any other character inspired such emotion throughout the fandom as that wayward-est member of Bridge Four? We're taking a deep dive into Moash's character, with plenty of hot takes on what role he serves in the narrative, where we think he might go after Rhythm of War (RoW spoiler warning!), the most important question: Should Moash be redeemed, or should he die very horribly in a very hot fire? Stay tuned to find out. We have Eric (Chaos), Alyx (Feather), Ian (Weiry), Grace (Gatorgirl), Shannon (Grey), and Matt (Comatose). This episode was edited by the effervescent Alyx (Feather), despite what Eric might try to tell you in the recording! Do not believe his lies. 0:00:00 – Introductions 0:02:18 – Let’s Talk About Moash, Huh? 0:27:41 – Can/Should Moash be Redeemed? 1:07:00 – Moash and Structural Inequality 1:33:59 – What’s Going to Happen to Moash Next? 1:39:34 – Conclusions 1:42:41 – Who’s That Cosmere Character Our thumbnail was our March Art commission by rspixart: https://www.patreon.com/posts/march-2021-art-49362169 If you like our content (and want to support more cool art), support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  15. Let's catch up on some Words of Brandon! In January, we did a Shardcast with Brandon, so we discuss what we learned from that, as well as getting through everything else that's happened in the first quarter of 2021! There's a bunch of things! This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Alyx (Feather), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Joshua (jofwu)! Thanks to Ben for editing this one!

  16. So I am listening to the newest Shardcast, and as usual I came up with a new theory. The latest Shardcast is discussing Ba-Ado-Mishram, and as they were spitballing some things I have come up with a hot take on the origins of this most mysterious Unmade. So there is some mention in Oathbringer/WoR epigraphs (I believe the Hessi's Mythica sequence) that Ba-Ado-Mishram was "A Highprincess of the enemy forces" and this seems to imply that she was some kind of mortal. Of course, this is in-book research so there can be all kinds of Recreance shenanigans. Later, in RoW, Kalak references a character called Mishram, with a certain amount of familiarity. Also, there is one point in RoW part 2 (maybe, don't have the book on me right now but it's the scene where the Fused and Venli are invading Urithiru) where Rabonial swears by "Ado," which as one Shardcaster pointed out is the first part of the Alethi glyph for light- and also similar to Adonalsium. In addition, and I'm not sure this is relevant, Chaos keeps pointing out that there are not one, but two hyphens in Ba-Ado-Mishram's name, which is unique among the Unmade. Ba-Ado-Mishram has some kind of Connection to the Parsh, Spren, and Roshar as a whole, which is unusual since Adhesion (the Surge of Connection) is called "Honor's purest Surge." My theory: Ado, the entity that Rabonial refers to, is the Spren of Lights (as in the physical representation of Investiture on Roshar), a being on a level with the Stormfather and the Nightwatcher. Mishram, the person that Kalak refers to, was once a mortal Singer who eventually bonded (in a Bondsmith-like process) with Ado, and then was corrupted/Unmade somehow by Odium, leading to the entity that modern Rosharans refer to as Ba-Ado-Mishram. The "Ba" in this case would mean something along the lines of "both" or "together." Let me know what ya'll think! I'm pretty new to theory crafting and I'd love to hear any thoughts you guys have on my style.
  17. So you've sent in a ton of Who's That Cosmere Characters, and we haven't done ANY from after Rhythm of War! We gotta go do that. So here we are, and we get through... fifteen characters. So we're really reducing the queue down a bunch, heh. Anyway, I hope you enjoy! This week we have Ben (Overlord Jebus), Eric (Chaos), Alyx (Feather), David (Windrunner), Shannon (Grey), and Marvin (Paleo)! There's also some long outtakes from this episode of Ben flubbing up the intro and also talk about movies and horror on our Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard Chapters: 00:00 Introductions 1:49 WTCC Intro 4:12 Character 1 7:21 Character 2 11:16 Character 3 20:31 Character 4 27:35 Character 5 33:03 Character 6 38:43 Character 7 51:46 Character 8 1:05:55 Character 9 1:10:26 Character 10 1:15:08 Character 11 1:17:02 Character 12 1:22:50 Character 13 1:25:58 Character 14 1:28:00 Character 15 1:31:23 Outro For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  18. Switching off from cosmere things, let's talk about Skyward 3! It won't be called Nowhere, but we'll still make some jokes about it. There's plenty to discuss for what could possibly happen in this book, so check it out! This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Shannon (Grey), and for the first time, Jessie (LadyLameness)! If you want to see our last episode on Skyward stuff, check out our Starsight Reactions podcast: https://youtu.be/N0wrSGZ0G_Y We also have some bonus content totally unrelated from the podcast, but there are Star Wars, MCU, and WandaVision talk that had nothing to do with this episode, and we cut it and put it on our Patreon.

  19. One of the things that has perplexed many of us for some time is the so-called "missing Shardblades:" the absence of the many Shardblades we see in Dalinar's flashbacks of the Recreance. In Rhythm of War, we learn that the "ancient fabrials" such as Soulcasters are actually the physical representation of spren- specifically Radiant spren. Kind of like Shardblades. I think it's possible that after seeing the destruction wrought by their weapons at Feverstone Keep, many of the other Radiants decided not to drop their spren as Blades, but as something else- this could explain both the lack of Shardblades and the strange observation Navani makes that the Soulcaster spren appear like a Radiant spren. The physical appearance and function of these devices would vary, but we do know that some Soulcasters only deal with certain materials- and we don't know what other devices could have been ignored in the post-Recreance destruction. This is a very hot take that I got while listening to the newest Shardcast episode. Let me know your thoughts!
  20. Last time, we talked about the Rhythm of War Part One epigraphs and the fabrials details there (which you can check out here: https://youtu.be/96lCEbKyiSA ). This time we are going deep into the new things we've learned in Dawnshard and Rhythm of War, and boy. There is a lot. We get solidly into the weeds here on mechanics, aluminum, and the ancient fabrials. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Joshua (jofwu), Marvin (Paleo), and Rosemary (Kaymyth). 00:00 Introduction 3:57 Fabrials 6:10 Aluminum, Frame of Reference, and Spanreeds 27:39 More Aluminum: Tomor's Glove and Fourth Bridge 41:06 Force Multiplication 48:47 Ancient Fabrials 1:29:49 Suppression Fabrial 1:54:25 Who's That Cosmere Character If you like our content, support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/17thshard For discussion, theories, games, and news, come to https://www.17thshard.com Come talk with us and the community on the 17th Shard Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMAUS5c Want to learn more about the cosmere and more?

  21. Let's talk about fabrials! We sure learned a bunch about them in Rhythm of War, that's for sure. This is the first of two episodes on fabrials. In this one we're going through the Part One epigraphs, which really did have a ton of fabrial stuff. We'll continue this next time, but do note Shardcast will be back to every other week after this one. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry, and who lives by a jet plane known as his laptop's fan), Evgeni (Argent), Joshua (jofwu), Marvin (Paleo), and making a return from a long, long time ago is Rosemary (Kaymyth)!

  22. Last time we talked mechanics about Enlightened Truthwatchers, but now let's talk about some character dynamics with Renarin and Rlain! We discuss representation, hopes for the future, with some book five thoughts as well! We also talk about possible oaths and Shardplate some too. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Alyx (Feather), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Matt (Comatose). We also have Dalish who wanted to play Who's That Cosmere Character too.

  23. This is one of two episodes we are doing on Renarin, Sja-anat, and Enlightened Truthwatchers!

We have Eric (Chaos), Alyx (Feather), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Matt (Comatose)!

  24. This week we need no rails. We're going to talk about Surges and Surgebinding, and we sure go in the deep end here! Rhythm of War spoilers on this, for sure. We also talk about a lot of Herald stuff, and it's probably relevant! We have Eric (Chaos), David (Windrunner), Evgeni (Argent), and Ben (Overlord Jebus)! 00:00 Intro and Show-and-tell 4:55 What is Surgebinding?

  25. We have an in-depth, meaty Shardcast for you this week, on the Lord of Scars. Big Rhythm of War and cosmere spoilers in this. Like really. Also, some of the things we discuss here were in the Brandon episode last week, but hopefully you don't terribly mind. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Alyx (Feather), and Matt (Comatose)! Thank you to Alyx for editing this. There were some pretty significant rendering issues this time.
